|''Captain Video and His Video Rangers'' - Misc Ep 4|
OK, so "Captain Video" has generally aged very badly, but most of what I've seen of the series has a certain charm to it and kinda fun to watch. However, this 1950 episode is just plain unwatchable, due to stereotyping and a general lack of sci-fi themes. This should only be downloaded by DuMont Network collectors...everyone else should run for their lives.

Another misc episode of the 1950s American television series "You Asked for It", featuring the following: A race between an abacus and a then-modern calculating machine, the secrets of phony spiritualists, a Calypso song and dance, and TV wrestler Georgous George doing card tricks.
